Grayce: How was the party last night?
Mats: It was awesome. Besides, I have a crush on a girl I met there, though it seemed she was not attracted to me at all. I'm not the type of the man she likes, I guess.
Grayce: Hmm. I bet you'll want to know this. According to a study I read in the China Post, a man who resembles a girl's father can make her heart flutter the most easily!

Matthew: I remember last month you signed up to take the GEPT? How's that going?
Grace: So far so good. I spend a lot of time studying for it. Though I can't imagine what I would do if I failed it.
Matthew: Just sign up again. A 73-year-old India man failed his high school exams for the 39th straight time and still vowed to try again next year -that's what I read on Yahoo! last week. So taking another test would be no big deal for you.

The Mission District
The Mission District is the region surrounding the oldest building in San Francisco, the Mission Dolores. It was completed in 1791 and has survived 4 major earthquakes including the 1906 earthquake that flattened most of San Francisco. Ironically, it was almost destroyed by lowly wood-eating beetles in the 1990s. Strange but true.

Lombard Street
While Lombard Street is definitely the crowd favorite, there are much steeper streets in San Francisco. Filbert St. and 22nd St. have sections of road while a grade of 31.5 degrees. Normally, most people would consider a hill of only 16 degrees steep. Vermont St. is also quite windy with 7 turns in only 270 feet. Parallel parking must be fun!

definite adj. 準確的;確切的
